Abide with Me
I am taking Basic Conducting this term as part of my music minor. All our tests are filmed so we can watch and critique them. This is my test on May 5. At the beginning of the class, my instructor, Dustin Graden, told us to forget everything we ever learned about conducting. So you'll notice that my movements are quite pedantic. I didn't know where to look, which made me look awkward and uncomfortable. There is a huge contrast between my expression during the piece and right after my cut off--suddenly I don't look so bored anymore!
